Fatima Jama represented a defendant at Guildford Crown Court for sentence in relation to two offences committed while serving a life sentence for murder. The offences of being concerned in the supply of class B drugs and unauthorised possession of a mobile phone inside a prison were committed on separate occasions.

The judge was persuaded to impose short sentences which while consecutive to each other were concurrent with his existing sentence. The defendant was coming to the end of the minimum term of his life sentence making the case exceptionally challenging. 

Fatima was instructed by Raida Peermahomed of Amosu Robinshaw Solicitors.
